Glaser Bender Technology

It's the small and unseen things that make the big difference.

Minimally Invasive, Weight Neutral

Under the


There is a small and shallow routed cavity under the neck plate just big enough for the Bender mechanaism.


Under the


A small opening sits under the bridge surface for the B or G Bender Finger.  This does not affect the instrument sound.

This 1/2" hole will hold the adjustable support tension spring and is capped by a small ferrule and the Phillips tension adjustment screw.

1. Under the Neckplate

Neckplate Route

A small, shallow cavity is created under the neckplate for the plate-mounted mechanism. This does not affect the body strength or sound.

Bender Lever Arm

The Bender Arm is free of screws and has no slack or wobble. The arm moves very smoothly and the destination pitch is fine-tuned with the thumbscrew shown.

Neckplate Mechanism

The integrated plate and mechanism allows great stability. The built-in bearings provide

the smoothest feel, all in a very light weight unit.

2. Under the Bridgeplate

Bridge Area Routing

There is a small non-invasive route under the bridge plate. This allows the Bender Finger to switch its position between being a B-Bender or G-Bender, per preference.

Left Handed Option

Benders for left-handed instruments are no problem and are also convertible between 'B' and 'G'. Note the vintage Fender lefty with the bridge corners factory notched to be   re-bent as a lefty.

Typical Installation

The Bender, installed, is non-invasive and retains the original look and sound.

Tension Spring Hole

A half inch dia. hole runs from the body end, under the bridge to the neckplate area. 

Tension Adjustment

A phillips screw allows individual preference of Bender tension, easily adjustable for a soft touch or for aggressive high-activity settings.

Strap Attachment

The butt end strap attachment is not affected by the Bender and does not impede tension screw access.
